Having problems with your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice ?
IF A 4.3 COMES ORIGINALLY WITH A 96 CAPRICE CAN YOU SWAP WITH 5.7 AND NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS
Yes, the motor mounts will bolt onto the frame, but you will have to likely change the transmission and engine computer, as well as the drive shaft due to the difference in the output shaft length from the transmission. You may be able to use the same radiator and fans, but some of the accessories may have to be changed, too, or at least put onto different brackets for the 5.7L. When this is done, the A/C, for example, may require a different hose assembly as the distances from firewall to bracket may change.
